Summer Breeze - awaken your senses with yoga on the wild beaches and nature spots of Hvar
Join us for a yoga, beaches and nature holiday program that is designed to transport you to a variety of beautiful beach and nature getaways throughout your stay to help you get grounded, connect to your senses, and rediscover the natural and healing beauty of mother nature.
Start the day in a happy way, full of light, sun, fresh air and a boundless amount of pure life force energy radiating out from the pristine natural environment. Enjoy connecting to the elements with all of your senses while simultaneously connecting to your whole being by simply closing your eyes and easing into your body-consciousness again.
The daily yoga sadhana will be followed by a light and healthy breakfast. The rest of the retreat time is yours to enjoy as you like: hang out by the sea, take a stroll into a nearby town or village, or enjoy the shelter of the retreat space for some quiet "personal time” and perhaps a holistic treatment of choice.
A 60-minute yoga Satsang or meditation session will be held each afternoon in various locations (tailored to the group’s wishes) and a delicious vegetarian dinner and quiet time await you in the evenings at the retreat. A sunset meditation and celebratory dinner in a local restaurant top off the week's experience. Come relax and enjoy with us!
During our daily Yoga Sadhana we worship our body, our whole being, while doing Yoga in nature, on the beautiful Yoga terrace or Yoga loft, surrounded by natural beauty at the retreat, or during the afternoon sessions by the beach or in the forest. With grounding Asanas we feel our body and its needs, and through stimulatory Pranayama we revitalize our bodies with the fresh air of the Island of Hvar. And we shall open up our mind again through dedicated meditations held by the sea, for a lifestyle we wish to experience for ourselves back home.
As we reconnect to our true essence by feeling our feet firmly on the ground and opening our heart to the beauty surrounding us every day, we will rediscover our true nature, who we really are, through healthy sattvic vegetarian food which is served outside in the Suncokret garden, and by also thinking healthy thoughts towards ourselves and others while dining and experiencing the week together as a community.
Who is this For? All lovers of yoga, beaches and nature welcome!
